We are sad to announce that as of today our doors are officially closed for the time being. Due to various recent events we will now only be concentrating on the dogs currently in our care and obviously still providing full backup for our adopted dogs and long term fosters too. But we will not be taking in any more dogs. The whole team are under a great amount of stress and we all need a break. We will still be organising events and continuing our kennel appeal as having our own premises would make things a hell of a lot easier on us all, as running a rescue without this is becoming impossible, we also still have a very large vet and boarding kennel bill to pay off. We are very sad to have to do this but it is the best decision for us as a rescue at the moment and we thank you all for your support, it means a lot to us

Joeys Legacy Boxer Rescue Liverpool
Registered Charity number 1153964

We are a small rescue organisation dedicated to helping boxers in need. 

We have a no destruction policy and never put a healthy dog to sleep. Full assessment is completed whilst the dogs are in our care to ensure that when rehomed they can be matched to the right family. There are few joys greater than the companionship and affection of a boxer. We hope this site will help you to find your new friend, treat him well and enjoy him to the full.

We are run entirely by volunteers who use all of their spare time to help boxers in need. All of our volunteers have been working with boxers and rescue organisations for a number of years. We are always on the lookout for more experienced people to help us with fostering, homechecking, transporting or fundraising.  If you are in the North West of England and can volunteer for us please contact us. The more help we have, the more we can help boxers in need.

Many people think dogs in rescue have behavioural problems, but this is not always the case. Most of the dogs that are handed to us are given up through no fault of their own. Some may have been abused, some may no longer be needed, now that they are too old to breed from.  Many are sadly given up by loving and caring families but due to a change in circumstances means the dog is not getting the care and attention it needs.
